About Blackwater Tubing

Blackwater Tubing, the unique aqua adventure delivers whole heap of fun, and is the ultimate way to explore the exquisite scenes of the Tsitsikamma. The excursion on one man inflatable river tubes takes place on the Storms River in the Plaatbos Nature reserve and Tsitsikamma National Park. This untouched river adventure is one of fun-filled hours of paddling, swimming, exquisite and unique nature scenes and optional rock and tube jumps up to 8m high.

Full Day Trip:

The gorge expedition is the real deal and is a must for the fit and fun loving adventure seeker. Once past the point of no return, you’re into is the ‘Narrow Gorge’ and the only way out is 4-5hrs later at the spectacular Storms River Mouth in the world famous Tsitsikamma National Park

This unique adventure experience is rounded off with a couple of cold ones and a well deserved Braai.

Half Day Trip:

The quick and easy half-day trip will give you a good taste of the tubing adventure. It delivers a bucket load of fun with only a fraction of the physical exertion of the full day trip as you take to the tea coloured waters of the upper Storms River.

We spend 1-2 fun filled hours pool hopping and rock jumping along the safest and widest section of the river.
